meeting of senators john mccain and president obama. this was held at belmont university in tennessee. the questions came from undecided voters from the nashville area. tom brokaw was allowed to include questions submitted on- line. this is almost two hours. >> good evening from belmont university in nashville, tennessee. i'm tom brokaw of nbc news. and welcome to this second presidential debate, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's debate is the only one with a townhall format. the gallup organization chose 80 uncommitted voters from the nashville area to be here with us tonight. and earlier today, each of them gave me a copy of their question for the candidates. from all of these questions -- and from tens of thousands submitted online -- i have selected a long list of excellent questions on domestic and foreign policy. neither the commission nor the candidates have seen the questions. and although we won't be able to get to all of them tonight, we should have a wide-ranging discussion one month before the election. each candidate will have two minutes to r

for president obama's speech later this week at the university of miami. in 2008, senator obama beat senator john mccain by 2 to 1 in the margin in the youth vote in this country. it's crucial for the president to get similar numbers this time around if he's going to win the state of florida. of course, to vote they must be registered and voter registration drives have been underway for months. according to statistics from the zx 2.8 million people are registered as independents or with a third party. the numbers are interesting, but it means nothing if there's no emotional component that will motivate them to do it. this is why the debates are so important in today's information culture. there must be a real emotional appeal by president obama if he's to succeed in getting these voters out to the polls. the best registration drive imaginable will not do a thing if there isn't this gut feeling that these young folks must get out and vote because they can make a difference. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the democratic party and one of the leaders in this portion of florida. the yout

white women here in the state of ohio. back in 2008, remember, senator obama won ohio then, he only got 47% of the white women vote. these are middle class women, a lot of them are working women, some of them have been laid off the last four years, some of them have had their husbands laid off the last four years. the 47% remark, i had a woman come up to me in michigan and talk about this, i met several in ohio today, it offended them. some have had to ask for food stamps or other government assistance over the past several years. it offended them and makes them think romney doesn't understand their every day struggles of getting the kids off to school, paying the bills. that is still a warning sign here. he's making progress but if i had to put one thing on a bill board and say to win the election, romney better learn to deal with this, it would be that. the blowback from the 47%, especially among middle class women. >> gloria, you say polls are showing suburban women are keyed to a romney win at this point. >> those aren't mutually exclusive. when you look at the poll, for example, on

say that favorite is obama. today you would say the democrats are likely to keep the senate. governor romney has a very narrow path, and if he wins the presidency, that means there is a wave behind him, there is some left to him, and that will bring in a couple candidates to put them all won over. >> so you understand, charlie cook has forgotten more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible in this. but of the reasons people beforehand a year ago thought the republicans were so sure is 2006 was a wave election and democrats won in a lot place where you did not expect them to win. the democrats work defending 23 seats and republicans only to end. by the nature of the math, it seems likely that the republicans would pick up seats and the democrats would lose. now i think the conventional wisdom is it is less than 50-50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talk about the house for a moment, controlled by republicans. democrats would have to pick up a lot of the seats. >> it is a long shot. democrats needed 25 seats. put that in context, at the end of world war ii
